Overview
More
We are an SSI/PADI dive center with a young and international team composed of experienced instructors and divemasters. Our headquarters, strategically located between Nungwi and Kendwa in the North of the Island, is the perfect starting point to easily reach the best dive sites around Zanzibar: magnificent underwater world rich in life suitable for divers of all levels, including the marine park of Mnemba, the holy island of Tumbatu, the beautiful area of Nungwi and, for the more experienced, the deep reef of Leven Bank. We also offer a wide range of SSI/PADI courses for both beginners and experienced divers. We are located inside one of the most prestigious resort on the island, the "Hideaway of Nungwi Resort & Spa". Other points of sale are located at the "Dream of Zanzibar" (Pwani Mchangani), at the "Uroa Bay Beach Resort" (Uroa) and at "La Base - Jungle Kite" (Kiwengwa).
